The Island of Iceland is located in the North Atlantic Ocean and is famous for its volcanos that litter the landscape. These volcanos can make for not only some stunning scenery but also provide many nutrients to the surrounding waters that in turn create a fish-rich environment that you will be fishing.

Fishing is done via our professional self-drive boats and is only a matter of minutes away from the harbour. All you have to travel is just a short journey and then you can be fishing away for both – huge Halibut and Cod. Sudureyri is a fishing destination unlike no other, situated on the coast of Iceland you will be fishing some of the most nutrient-rich waters you will find. This, in turn, means that your fishing could be extremely frantic, find a large shoal of Cod and you could well find that you are left exhausted by all the arm-wrenching action that you will be experiencing.
Along with the very good sport from the Cod that you could find you will also have the chance to try and fish for the mighty Halibut, these enormous flatfish are one of, if not the hardest fighting fish you will find in these waters and they will really pull your string. The fishing here is mainly done using shads and pirks and by working these at various depths to try and find the fish. If however, you wished to try and specifically fish for Halibut we would strongly advise using anti-twist leads and fish baits drifted on or near the bottom. Along with the famous Cod fishing that Iceland can produce the species that can also be targeted here include Wolffish, Coalfish and Plaice, which can all be caught either using pirks or traces baited with worms or small bits of fish.
